Okay, several months ago, I discovered Big Fish Games and I do love their “hidden object” games but this one literally made my jaw drop when I ran across an article about it:
Big Fish Games is launching a game aimed at women in a partnership with romance novel empire Harlequin Enterprises.
The game from Seattle-based Big Fish Games is Harlequin Presents: Hidden Object of Desire. It is a “hidden object” game, a popular casual game genre where users can find lots of treasures or secrets just by clicking on the landscape of a game. Of course, the game has a romantic storyline.
The game is inspired by The Royal House of Karedes, a series of Harlequin books. It features Allie, a reporter on assignment covering the 30th birthday of the Prince of Aristo. Upon her arrival in the Kingdom of Adamas with her photographer, Allie has to unravel a mystery by finding hidden objects and solving puzzles.
Let’s just say I’m still recovering from the shock — but seriously tempted at the same time. Purely out of curiosity, of course. Ahem. ;-)
